    “We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race.”

    Thanks

    He (or rather the character he was playing) was saying that the response to poetry is about feelings and empathy, not shallow attraction and also that any person has poetry in their soul and should try to express it as it's the human thing to do.

    One of the funniest things I heard him say was from stand-up not a movie, he was talking about the attempted impeachment of President Clinton by Congress.

    "Congress want to impeach the President? For having extra-marital sex? That's like asking a leper colony to judge a beauty competition".
